Woman’s Prayer Closet Only Thing Left Standing After Tornado Wipes Away Home
The tornado is one of the deadliest to strike the U.S. in six years, according to officials.
An Alabama woman’s prayer closet was the only thing left standing after a tornado swept through her area and leveled her home.
The unidentified woman’s home was almost totally destroyed earlier this month after a devastating tornado hit Lee County.
Jason Smith, a volunteer with the Billy Graham Rapid Response Team, was on hand to help with those affected by the tornado and came across the woman’s home with just her prayer closet intact.
Smith posted images of the closet on Facebook, where they've gone viral.
“Listen to me please. I just left a family who survived the tornado in this house and the only left standing is this closet. It's the grandmother's prayer closet, and the whole family survived. Are you kiddin me!!! My God is awesome!!!” he wrote in the caption with the photos.
The tornado is one of the deadliest to strike the U.S. in six years, according to officials. Twenty-three people were killed, including four children.
